Queen Square Alumnus Association newsletter Issue 12

Welcome to the twelfth edition of the Alumnus Association newsletter. I very much hope that you continue to enjoy this more interactive format.

In this edition of the newsletter our interview is with Professor Elizabeth Warrington.  We have  an obituary for Dr Peter Gautier-Smith, news from the Institute including the imminent release of the new history of Queen Square book, news from fellow Alumni and updates from the archives.

I would like to highlight that old editions of the Queen Square Alumnus Association newsletter produced by Miss Pat Harris, are available in PDF format on the Queen Square Alumni website https://www.ucl.ac.uk/ion/education/alumnusassociation/archivenewsletters. I would also like to draw your attention to the work in progress that is the Institute of Neurology History pages http://www.ucl.ac.uk/ion/about/history. As part of the project we will be adding a brief biography of notable former staff and students, and are starting with (in no particular order) William Gowers, Hughlings Jackson, David Ferrier, Victor Horsley, MacDonald Critchley, David Marsden, Anita Harding, John Marshall, Pat Harris, Louise Shepherd, Roger Gilliatt Sister Ling, Charles Symonds, James Risien Russel & Kinnier Wilson. As always feedback is greatly appreciated and don't hesitate to get in touch with suggestions.

I would like to thank the following people, without whom this edition of the newsletter would not have been possible; Prof Warrington for her interview; Mrs Marilyn Blundred for her attention to detail in proof reading this edition; Ms Sarah Lawson and Mr George Kaim for Queen Square Library and Archive material, and the Queen Square Library for photographs used in this edition.

I hope you enjoy reading the twelfth edition of the Queen Square Alumnus Association newsletter.
